IOS 14.2 killed this game

So I uninstalled and reinstalled. Now it works. Love the game play. Wish you had Christmas holiday themes.
Last iOS update
by Peterkruft5 on 2020/11/24 14:23
App crashes and won’t start after last iOS update 14.2. Reboot still won’t work. :( sad because it’s the only game I like to play. I did what you suggested uninstalling and reinstalling fixed the issue. Thanks
It’s Working Again
by DCSinagra on 2020/11/24 05:07
The app stopped working with the update to iOS 14.2. Had to delete and reinstall the app and it’s working great. Unfortunately, I lost all my progress in the stats, but it’s okay because I can finally play it again.
Incompatible with iOS 14.2

Best solitaire game we’ve found

This is absolutely the best one we have found in the App Store. The wife and I tried many others but keep coming back to this one.

Getting hung up
by Goldie9673333 on 2019/10/17 21:06
Update to review below. Ever since I gave this a mediocre review (because of freezes), it now works perfectly! Was someone listening??? Worked great for quite awhile, but now tends to get hung up. No improvement noticed with removing other software, clearing cache, playing on another device, etc. Can still play okay but takes a bit more patience to get it started. Once the new game starts it plays w/o sticking, thus 3 stars.

by Gsegbbig edx on 2019/07/21 13:52
I’ve been an Eric’s Solitare practically since the beginning (1997?ish) and loved playing so that every game was solvable. Miss that. Otherwise love the game, easy to see, feels like I’m playing with real cards.
Great pastime
by rachelsdad on 2019/07/19 20:04
I really enjoy the games and play every day - many times during the day. I always enjoyed solitaire but to have the app right there any time - like a good friend - even though I lose a lot. Thanks
Great
by Shiney Nancy on 2019/02/02 05:42
I’ve had this for a long time! I just transferred it to my iPad. I have tried others, but they are not this good!
Used to be great. Now it is sluggish and jumpy.
by NF6X on 2018/12/06 21:47
This Solitaire app used to be fantastic, but current versions are very sluggish and jumpy. Frequent pauses while moving cards make it unpleasant to play. I am currently using version 1.8 on an iPhone 8.
AWESOME

How willing are you to beat a difficult game?
by Kathy Chris on 2018/07/22 02:20
My favorite way to play this game is Revealed (Deal 1). Puts it all on you. Most of these deals can be beaten; you may get it the first time but more likely you will have to try again and again. Sometimes I have to get out of it for a day or two, but it’s great when you finally win. It can be a real challenge.

Eric’s games USED to be the best. He quit caring about a year ago. Concerns are ignored immediately. After sharing my concerns about poor play on two different iPhones several times with no improvement I finally deleted and found another app.

by Needles and pins on 2018/01/25 19:08
I love it so much. Years ago I had it for my Mac and then couldn’t find it any more. I just looked for it and discovered I couldn’t get this particular game. I have to pay 14.95 for several games. This is a deal breaker since I wanted Klondike. I downloaded another Klondike. I am disappointed.
Freezes
by Derryls on 2018/01/16 04:35
This used to work fine on iPad but now if don’t wait to play for about 5 seconds, card movement freezes; moves VERY slowly, or does nothing at all. The help menu keeps popping up when touching card stack. (In 1 card mode). The behavior happens on the start of each new game. This has happened only since the last two iOS updates Resolved: deleted the app and reloaded - now works. OS updates must have corrupted something.
Too slow
by Erich.V on 2017/12/17 23:33
There’s animation use to place cards is more a meditative pace. No one would call it snappy.

Solitare review
by Not_happy :( on 2017/10/08 04:08
New version is slow, hangs up, freezes, and has an annoying pop up about a winning streak when there are no more moves in the current game! Have to rate it one star since zero stars isn't an option. Update new version 1.8 is GREAT! All problems fixed. Thanks
An excellent solitaire game
by Slarty Bartfast on 2017/10/02 07:14
Hi! Real simple: I have more than a dozen solitaire apps, and this is the one I play. It's the best one I've found. Buy it. EDIT: Still love this app, but since the IOS 11 update the game freezes frequently, often when it’s first opened. I’m sure this is just some new OS hiccups. The game doesn’t crash, but it is annoying.
Temporary freezes
by CharlieGx on 2017/10/01 23:13
During each session will freeze for up to 30 seconds but then continues fine.
Interim upgrade issues resolved. Works fine!
by SilverGhost on 2017/09/30 16:07
I have been playing this game since forever. All of a sudden, the developers decided to ruin it. The cards are jumpy and flakey. It is not playable any more. I see a whole list of developers. Did no one QA this thing? How could you release it like this? Upgraded to current version (1.8). All issues resolved. Changed rating to 5 stars.
Best solitaire ever.

Best Solitaire and my favorite game
by BillCreech3Gs on 2017/07/15 17:29
Best Solitaire and my favorite game. I have tried many Solitaire games on the App Store and this is by far the best one. New update solves the error message the old version was getting from Apple that it could slow down your device.
Was great
by PansKnight on 2017/07/14 14:27
After the latest update it stutters a lot and hesitates.

Never any problems. Play several times daily. And for several years. Pleasant interface.
Outstanding regular solitaire game
by new old school maven on 2017/07/12 00:55
This is the best regular solitaire game on any platform (like the one Gates used as main fun element to initially " monopolize" pc platform windows) but tweaked ten fold. I haven't tried all the others but a lot of them. The sounds are perfect. Visuals colorful but not distracting and without silly nit picking rules that penalize for seeing a move a second too late and quickly redoing the move u just discovered. The only suggestion I have to improve is adding a wider range of comments to offer more nuanced reactions to the player's game performance. ( i wish Eric would come up with a submarine and airport game since he is the master of knowing how to keep the skill in the conceptual thinking and fun and eliminating tiny and unneeded skill in minutia. All sub and airplane games suffer from having a plethora of sim details that sap the fun out of the symbolic meaning and emotion that a sub or airport environment should have.)
So disappointed with latest update
by KatVirMcK on 2017/07/11 15:55
Update: The jumpiness problem has been resolved. There are still a few minor bugs left, but I can play again. I don't know if I will be able to continue playing with this update that was automatically done. Even after changing the settings, it has slowed down making plays, and the cards are very "jumpy" which is very distracting. If this isn't fixed back to what it was before, I'll have to find another solitaire game to play. I'm upset, because this has been my favorite for many years.
Programmed game!
by Rich-o on 2017/07/10 04:15
Great 'past time' game (nice anti-toxic)..developer did good job! Only issue is that it's predictable when you win & lose (mostly lose). In other words the game is programmed & difficult to rise above 10% -13% wining percentage. Can't prove it. Specific patterns do seem to emerge after a couple wins with long droughts in between. Only one example. Nevertheless, it's relaxing game especially when you prefer to space out for a while.
Awesome again!
by Windsong3099 on 2017/07/07 18:22
Edited review, the developer fixed the issue and is quick to respond. The game is the best solitaire, as far as I've found. It's my zen go to.
Great game
by alanandjanene on 2017/07/07 01:49
This is my favorite solitaire game, by far. I've tried a lot of them. The developer quickly fixed a small problem after an update, and was very responsive to feedback.
Eric Snyder's Solitaire
by Tiggerriffic 23 on 2017/07/03 03:17
I love playing this game. It is very addicting too!! It would be nice if you could change the cards backing to make it different.
Pretty good, but with bugs.
by melgross on 2017/06/07 19:36
The real question is when this will be updated for ios 11. While we're told it will be, the time is getting close. Shortly I will be on the ios 11 beta, and then poof, it won't work. Older review: The game is well done, and a lot of fun to play. The animations are nicely implemented. But, there are too many bugs. The automatic function is very buggy. Sometimes it will pick up on all the cards during the gameplay, and sometimes it won't pick up even one. Sometimes it will pick some up, but will stop in the middle for no apparent reason. This isn't a problem when at the end of a won game, but during the game when an ace is thrown onto the table. In addition, the sensor for horizontal and vertical is too sensitive. I'm blaming the game for this because it doesn't seem to be a problem with the playing board itself, but the the window that pops up at the end of the game, and when accessing the statistics, which sometimes opens up upside down. This is with my iPad 2. I don't remember if things were this buggy on my old one. If the bugs were fixed, I would give this a five.
Needs update
by rrnorman on 2017/05/19 03:26
Every time I open this app my iPhone tells me it won't work after the next iOS update. Please update I don't want to lose this game!
Klondike 1 card
by Solitaire👑Queen on 2017/05/18 13:46
As an introvert solitaire is my favorite game. If it was my ideal game you would be able to control the auto complete with a button, the ace stacks would go hearts, spades, diamonds, clubs automatically because that's the way I like it. Almost my perfect solitaire!
Don't use this app much
by Tapioca3 on 2017/05/11 19:00
This was my favorite solitaire game, but I have had to largely give it up. I keep waiting to see if the company would update this app to use less energy. I received a message a few months ago that Snider was working on an update to fix this problem. Because it takes so much energy to use, I can't use this very much as it drains the battery.

What Happened?
by Gekkota on 2016/05/08 03:59
This used to be the best solitaire game. I've had it since it first came out but this new update has ruined it...and ruined my win percentage. Since the update I have played--and lost--14 games in a row. Not a SINGLE win! According to the stats I've played over 6000 games so I know what I am talking about!
Horrible animation
by mfears on 2016/04/09 02:10
The animation of the cards is so annoying I deleted this app after one game. Threw away 99 cents. :/

Sends unknown data to Eric Snider
by Steve NYC on 2015/04/20 20:18
It’s a great game but it sends unknown data to Sniderware. I wrote to the developer: Eric Snider, I'm really disconcerted. Why would a Solitaire game want to send data from my iPhone to you or someone else you know?? I used to be able to just turn it off. Now I can't. I can only turn off cellular use for sending you all my data on my iPhone. Why do want my contacts, etc? Pictures? I'd delete the game, but I've always liked it. Please be upfront and tell us all what data you are taking from us.
Best-looking and best game play of any Solitaire on iTunes
by Gamester81 on 2015/03/29 20:04
The look and game play of this Solitaire game is fantastic. I have played over 1000 times and my winning percentage is going up. It took a while, but I've learned a few techniques thanks to this game. Tip: if you have a close game but lose, replay it and make different choices. You can still win. Another tip: don't be shy and use the "undo" liberally.
Can I win a game? Please?
by UpstateBabe on 2015/03/11 21:37
Since the last update I can't seem to win a game no matter which flavor I play. And to top it off there's no way to turn off the miserable stats screen, so I feel doubly defeated. I've had this game for a long time and am sad that it's changed so much. I really like the graphics, the nice subtle sounds and the actual game play, but I'd like to win once in a while. Guess I'm going shopping for a different, basic Klondike.
the best ...
by humorzo on 2014/12/26 23:32
Eric Snider is the best. Reliable, great card game. Loved now for years. His attention to detail is obvious - and makes the sloppiness of so many crashing, glitchy apps painfully obvious. Apple should weed out the crap here.

Just as addictive as Eric's Spider Solitaire. Not a piece of cake- all variations are challenging and sometime very frustrating Love all of the games- keep having to charge my phone so I can play
Latest update failure
by DJCole124 on 2014/01/23 16:51
I have played this app every since I bought my IPad, but this last update has made game play so difficult. I have given it a chance, by playing over 1400 games, but with only a 13% win rate. It just seems to be harder to play!
Best out there!
by pkradd on 2014/01/11 03:49
I got a new iPod a year ago, and for some reason Eric's Solitaire wouldn't work on it. I kept my old one just because it had a working version on it. It's that good and I'm addicted!!
Great pastime.

Klondike is extremely entertaining, fun and I like the hi-tech display and awesome sounds. But what I like best is when I had a problem with the program, I emailed the company. Lo and behold.....Erik himself responded. We exchanged several emails since. He's very accommodating. Turned out the problem had more to do with Itunes than with Erik's fascinating game! Keep creating more games, Eric.....and thanks!

Wish I'd just stayed with the free version. The free version has name tags (not in paid app), better tech and yes, ads, but at the paid app price, I expected more. Just not worth the premium price. I guess you have to expect to pick up a not so great app, on occasion. I did with this one. I'll be deleting this app, and trashing the one stored in my iTunes app folder too.

Great pastime

I really enjoy the games and play every day - many times during the day. I always enjoyed solitaire but to have the app right there any time - like a good friend - even though I lose a lot. Thanks

This Solitaire app used to be fantastic, but current versions are very sluggish and jumpy. Frequent pauses while moving cards make it unpleasant to play. I am currently using version 1.8 on an iPhone 8.

Outstanding regular solitaire game
by new old school maven on 2017/07/12 00:55
This is the best regular solitaire game on any platform (like the one Gates used as main fun element to initially " monopolize" pc platform windows) but tweaked ten fold. I haven't tried all the others but a lot of them. The sounds are perfect. Visuals colorful but not distracting and without silly nit picking rules that penalize for seeing a move a second too late and quickly redoing the move u just discovered. The only suggestion I have to improve is adding a wider range of comments to offer more nuanced reactions to the player's game performance. ( i wish Eric would come up with a submarine and airport game since he is the master of knowing how to keep the skill in the conceptual thinking and fun and eliminating tiny and unneeded skill in minutia. All sub and airplane games suffer from having a plethora of sim details that sap the fun out of the symbolic meaning and emotion that a sub or airport environment should have.)
Very good
by Pullrod on 2011/07/15 18:17
Eric you did a fine job. Im 54, yes older folks have iphones too! Ha. I downloaded and installed aprox. 7 free versions of solitare. For me this one was absolutley the better of the bunch. I can See the cards! Which is very important with this card game. So i Purchsed the full version, there was no need to try out another!! Graphics are crisp amd clear, the card size is good. Card action is crisp and nice animation. Colors are vibrent and realistic. Eric has made this a thinking solitare game, hand is not always an instance winner, very challenging hands of solitare. Great job. On your next update, (for the older people, over 40 that is) see if you could increase the size of cards by 15 thousands, maybe 20 thousands of an inch. But, this is the nicest app of solitare i have played on my iphone. Thanks.
FINALLY! Solitaire like I remember!
by disneymagik on 2011/11/17 13:06
I learned how to play from my Grandparents who live 250 miles away so the time we spent was very memorable & we played ALOT of cards! I used to love playing Solitaire with real cards, and when we got our first PC, I think I clocked the most hrs playing! BUT, it was called SPIDER Solitaire on the PC so that's the App I bought first since I was sure it was the one, but NOPE! I moved on to buy Eric's Solitaire's one at a time with Klondike, of course, being the very last. Before i'd purchased ANY of them, I would've said that it was DEFINITELY NOT Klondike I was looking for since I hadn't even heard of it before, but now I know, that's exactly what it is and I love it!! :)
Love this App
by KGizmo4 on 2011/04/17 20:27
This is a great solitaire game with a great user interface. I like that you can just tap the cards to move them. Much better that drag and drop. I've tried many of the free versions of solitaire apps on the app store and decided this one was the best one for me. I'm glad that there was a free version that allowed me to try it before I bought it. I feel that if I truly love an app, I don't mind upgrading to the paid version. This is the developer's hard work and they deserve to be paid for their talents if the app is worthy which this one is. Thanks!
Pretty good, but with bugs.
by melgross on 2017/06/07 19:36
The real question is when this will be updated for ios 11. While we're told it will be, the time is getting close. Shortly I will be on the ios 11 beta, and then poof, it won't work. Older review: The game is well done, and a lot of fun to play. The animations are nicely implemented. But, there are too many bugs. The automatic function is very buggy. Sometimes it will pick up on all the cards during the gameplay, and sometimes it won't pick up even one. Sometimes it will pick some up, but will stop in the middle for no apparent reason. This isn't a problem when at the end of a won game, but during the game when an ace is thrown onto the table. In addition, the sensor for horizontal and vertical is too sensitive. I'm blaming the game for this because it doesn't seem to be a problem with the playing board itself, but the the window that pops up at the end of the game, and when accessing the statistics, which sometimes opens up upside down. This is with my iPad 2. I don't remember if things were this buggy on my old one. If the bugs were fixed, I would give this a five.
Don't waste money on other games, this is the best Klondike out there!
by LeZorg on 2009/10/19 13:53
Card games are my favorite handheld games, and I have purchased at least 10 different Klondike/solitaire games so far, including all the most popular ones, but this one is the only one I have at this time on my iPhone. Most card apps try too hard to be look great and in the end they're not as fun to play. It's easy to play, the cards are big and readable, the design is nice, it's a great implementation for real Klondike lovers out there. Get it now!
So disappointed with latest update
by KatVirMcK on 2017/07/11 15:55
Update: The jumpiness problem has been resolved. There are still a few minor bugs left, but I can play again. I don't know if I will be able to continue playing with this update that was automatically done. Even after changing the settings, it has slowed down making plays, and the cards are very "jumpy" which is very distracting. If this isn't fixed back to what it was before, I'll have to find another solitaire game to play. I'm upset, because this has been my favorite for many years.
Love it!
by Claymouth on 2009/09/28 06:17
Up until this point I had only bothered playing free Solitaire apps, but on the recommendation of a friend I bought this version and I couldn't be happier. The interface is so intuitive, and the card tossing feature actually makes the game even more fun to play. I love the way the hints are implemented as well - I get a few seconds to make my move before the hints appear, but just when I'm starting to feel stuck the cards give me a little wiggle. Great job!
Most Fun Solitaire!
by ChellQ on 2011/11/13 03:46
Eric's is the most fun of the several solitaire games I've tried on the iPhone. The card flinging alone sets it apart. It's not easy to make solitaire enjoyable on such a small screen, but Eric's does big time. The only thing I'd add is the ability to change the faces of the cards - the faces don't show the pips and that makes it harder to instantly know the number on the card - I have to look harder to read the numbers and it slows my recognition.
Great game!
by Renee Aubuchon on 2011/04/17 17:52
This is a serviceable Klondike game. I wish one could see what the unrevealed cards are when the game becomes hopeless...although I pretty much know what they are given that their absence as playable cards is what dooms a game. While some may find that the cards wiggle back and worth amusing, I only find it distracting. If I knew of a way to turn the wiggling off, I most certainly would. I appreciate the game statistics as well. Thank you for making this game.

Update to review below. Ever since I gave this a mediocre review (because of freezes), it now works perfectly! Was someone listening??? Worked great for quite awhile, but now tends to get hung up. No improvement noticed with removing other software, clearing cache, playing on another device, etc. Can still play okay but takes a bit more patience to get it started. Once the new game starts it plays w/o sticking, thus 3 stars.

My favorite way to play this game is Revealed (Deal 1). Puts it all on you. Most of these deals can be beaten; you may get it the first time but more likely you will have to try again and again. Sometimes I have to get out of it for a day or two, but it’s great when you finally win. It can be a real challenge.

This used to work fine on iPad but now if don’t wait to play for about 5 seconds, card movement freezes; moves VERY slowly, or does nothing at all. The help menu keeps popping up when touching card stack. (In 1 card mode). The behavior happens on the start of each new game. This has happened only since the last two iOS updates Resolved: deleted the app and reloaded - now works. OS updates must have corrupted something.

Hi! Real simple: I have more than a dozen solitaire apps, and this is the one I play. It's the best one I've found. Buy it. EDIT: Still love this app, but since the IOS 11 update the game freezes frequently, often when it’s first opened. I’m sure this is just some new OS hiccups. The game doesn’t crash, but it is annoying.

Programmed game!
by Rich-o on 2017/07/10 04:15
Great 'past time' game (nice anti-toxic)..developer did good job! Only issue is that it's predictable when you win & lose (mostly lose). In other words the game is programmed & difficult to rise above 10% -13% wining percentage. Can't prove it. Specific patterns do seem to emerge after a couple wins with long droughts in between. Only one example. Nevertheless, it's relaxing game especially when you prefer to space out for a while.
Awesome again!
by Windsong3099 on 2017/07/07 18:22

by melgross on 2017/06/07 19:36
The real question is when this will be updated for ios 11. While we're told it will be, the time is getting close. Shortly I will be on the ios 11 beta, and then poof, it won't work. Older review: The game is well done, and a lot of fun to play. The animations are nicely implemented. But, there are too many bugs. The automatic function is very buggy. Sometimes it will pick up on all the cards during the gameplay, and sometimes it won't pick up even one. Sometimes it will pick some up, but will stop in the middle for no apparent reason. This isn't a problem when at the end of a won game, but during the game when an ace is thrown onto the table. In addition, the sensor for horizontal and vertical is too sensitive. I'm blaming the game for this because it doesn't seem to be a problem with the playing board itself, but the the window that pops up at the end of the game, and when accessing the statistics, which sometimes opens up upside down. This is with my iPad 2. I don't remember if things were this buggy on my old one. If the bugs were fixed, I would give this a five.

As an introvert solitaire is my favorite game. If it was my ideal game you would be able to control the auto complete with a button, the ace stacks would go hearts, spades, diamonds, clubs automatically because that's the way I like it. Almost my perfect solitaire!
Don't use this app much
by Tapioca3 on 2017/05/11 19:00
This was my favorite solitaire game, but I have had to largely give it up. I keep waiting to see if the company would update this app to use less energy. I received a message a few months ago that Snider was working on an update to fix this problem. Because it takes so much energy to use, I can't use this very much as it drains the battery.

PowerMac to iPad app...Eric's Solitaire is simply THE BEST. Do miss the "always winnable" option.

I love playing this game!! Been playing since 2010 I think!! Would recommend it to anyone. Great when standing in a long line!!
What Happened?
by Gekkota on 2016/05/08 03:59
This used to be the best solitaire game. I've had it since it first came out but this new update has ruined it...and ruined my win percentage. Since the update I have played--and lost--14 games in a row. Not a SINGLE win! According to the stats I've played over 6000 games so I know what I am talking about!
Horrible animation
by mfears on 2016/04/09 02:10
The animation of the cards is so annoying I deleted this app after one game. Threw away 99 cents. :/
Solitaire - Eric's

I really enjoy this app. One of the absolute best anywhere.
Sends unknown data to Eric Snider
by Steve NYC on 2015/04/20 20:18
It’s a great game but it sends unknown data to Sniderware. I wrote to the developer: Eric Snider, I'm really disconcerted. Why would a Solitaire game want to send data from my iPhone to you or someone else you know?? I used to be able to just turn it off. Now I can't. I can only turn off cellular use for sending you all my data on my iPhone. Why do want my contacts, etc? Pictures? I'd delete the game, but I've always liked it. Please be upfront and tell us all what data you are taking from us.
Best-looking and best game play of any Solitaire on iTunes
by Gamester81 on 2015/03/29 20:04
The look and game play of this Solitaire game is fantastic. I have played over 1000 times and my winning percentage is going up. It took a while, but I've learned a few techniques thanks to this game. Tip: if you have a close game but lose, replay it and make different choices. You can still win. Another tip: don't be shy and use the "undo" liberally.
Can I win a game? Please?
by UpstateBabe on 2015/03/11 21:37
Since the last update I can't seem to win a game no matter which flavor I play. And to top it off there's no way to turn off the miserable stats screen, so I feel doubly defeated. I've had this game for a long time and am sad that it's changed so much. I really like the graphics, the nice subtle sounds and the actual game play, but I'd like to win once in a while. Guess I'm going shopping for a different, basic Klondike.
the best ...
by humorzo on 2014/12/26 23:32
Eric Snider is the best. Reliable, great card game. Loved now for years. His attention to detail is obvious - and makes the sloppiness of so many crashing, glitchy apps painfully obvious. Apple should weed out the crap here.
Great

Best game I've ever played!
Fun way to pass time !
by Lodderena on 2014/03/23 03:08
Very enjoyable Solitaire game! Can lose track of time playing it, especially in airports!
Solitare
by 160hic on 2014/02/06 16:10
Just as addictive as Eric's Spider Solitaire. Not a piece of cake- all variations are challenging and sometime very frustrating Love all of the games- keep having to charge my phone so I can play
Latest update failure
by DJCole124 on 2014/01/23 16:51
I have played this app every since I bought my IPad, but this last update has made game play so difficult. I have given it a chance, by playing over 1400 games, but with only a 13% win rate. It just seems to be harder to play!
Best out there!
by pkradd on 2014/01/11 03:49
I got a new iPod a year ago, and for some reason Eric's Solitaire wouldn't work on it. I kept my old one just because it had a working version on it. It's that good and I'm addicted!!
Great pastime.
by Kal OPE on 2013/12/25 12:16
Anytime I have some time to kill I break out casino solitaire. Not much of a fan of the other games though.
Fun times!
by Wisctim on 2013/12/21 22:08
I've had this game on my iPod Touch for a few years now and I always come back to it. The updates have not messed it up yet and it's still one of my favorite apps.
Very fun!
by Z7q9pm3xr333 on 2013/12/21 04:19
Love the game. Very flexible and lots of choices.
Well designed and eminently playable
by Bink_In_AK on 2013/12/10 20:30
A very good solitaire rendition with a variation, Klondike Revealed that is harder than it looks (I've only found revealed here)
Great game!

Nice Update
by Foxie Lee on 2013/11/19 15:57
Nice update as Eric makes beyond awesome card games. He just put out an all in one for the Mac. The graphics and game play is really nice. THANKS Eric!!!
Good game
by Doug in Lynden on 2013/09/20 04:03
I've tried several solitaire apps and they were either too easy or impossible to win. This one hits the sweet spot; challenging yet enough wins to keep it fun. I'd definitely recommend it.
The best !
by EZitrin on 2013/09/13 17:19
Eric Snider's solitaire games are just the best.
Not Good
by Puzzle Comments on 2013/08/28 21:41
This game is not fair. The more times I have won the harder it becomes to win. I don't believe the games are dealt in a random manner.
So fun!
by HollisJK on 2013/08/06 21:12
App consistently works well, super fun to play. No crashing at all.
Just good fun

Klondike
by Natethemachine on 2013/05/23 00:48
Love playing the game on my iPad. It would be great to play other versions like eight off. That's my favorite.
The BEST!
by GoldLegend on 2013/04/18 09:47
Klondike is extremely entertaining, fun and I like the hi-tech display and awesome sounds. But what I like best is when I had a problem with the program, I emailed the company. Lo and behold.....Erik himself responded. We exchanged several emails since. He's very accommodating. Turned out the problem had more to do with Itunes than with Erik's fascinating game! Keep creating more games, Eric.....and thanks!

Great Solitaire App!

Five Stars!
Get the free version...
by Lee56232 on 2013/03/26 16:19
Wish I'd just stayed with the free version. The free version has name tags (not in paid app), better tech and yes, ads, but at the paid app price, I expected more. Just not worth the premium price. I guess you have to expect to pick up a not so great app, on occasion. I did with this one. I'll be deleting this app, and trashing the one stored in my iTunes app folder too.
Freezes
by Derryls on 2018/01/16 04:35
This used to work fine on iPad but now if don’t wait to play for about 5 seconds, card movement freezes; moves VERY slowly, or does nothing at all. The help menu keeps popping up when touching card stack. (In 1 card mode). The behavior happens on the start of each new game. This has happened only since the last two iOS updates Resolved: deleted the app and reloaded - now works. OS updates must have corrupted something.
Getting hung up
by Goldie9673333 on 2019/10/17 21:06
Update to review below. Ever since I gave this a mediocre review (because of freezes), it now works perfectly! Was someone listening??? Worked great for quite awhile, but now tends to get hung up. No improvement noticed with removing other software, clearing cache, playing on another device, etc. Can still play okay but takes a bit more patience to get it started. Once the new game starts it plays w/o sticking, thus 3 stars.
Interim upgrade issues resolved. Works fine!
by SilverGhost on 2017/09/30 16:07
I have been playing this game since forever. All of a sudden, the developers decided to ruin it. The cards are jumpy and flakey. It is not playable any more. I see a whole list of developers. Did no one QA this thing? How could you release it like this? Upgraded to current version (1.8). All issues resolved. Changed rating to 5 stars.
How willing are you to beat a difficult game?
by Kathy Chris on 2018/07/22 02:20
My favorite way to play this game is Revealed (Deal 1). Puts it all on you. Most of these deals can be beaten; you may get it the first time but more likely you will have to try again and again. Sometimes I have to get out of it for a day or two, but it’s great when you finally win. It can be a real challenge.
An excellent solitaire game
by Slarty Bartfast on 2017/10/02 07:14
Hi! Real simple: I have more than a dozen solitaire apps, and this is the one I play. It's the best one I've found. Buy it. EDIT: Still love this app, but since the IOS 11 update the game freezes frequently, often when it’s first opened. I’m sure this is just some new OS hiccups. The game doesn’t crash, but it is annoying.
Solitare review
by Not_happy :( on 2017/10/08 04:08
New version is slow, hangs up, freezes, and has an annoying pop up about a winning streak when there are no more moves in the current game! Have to rate it one star since zero stars isn't an option. Update new version 1.8 is GREAT! All problems fixed. Thanks
Last iOS update
by Peterkruft5 on 2020/11/24 14:23
App crashes and won’t start after last iOS update 14.2. Reboot still won’t work. :( sad because it’s the only game I like to play. I did what you suggested uninstalling and reinstalling fixed the issue. Thanks
It’s Working Again
by DCSinagra on 2020/11/24 05:07
The app stopped working with the update to iOS 14.2. Had to delete and reinstall the app and it’s working great. Unfortunately, I lost all my progress in the stats, but it’s okay because I can finally play it again.
Great pastime
by rachelsdad on 2019/07/19 20:04
I really enjoy the games and play every day - many times during the day. I always enjoyed solitaire but to have the app right there any time - like a good friend - even though I lose a lot. Thanks
Best solitaire game we’ve found
by Dragonstones on 2020/03/18 14:30
This is absolutely the best one we have found in the App Store. The wife and I tried many others but keep coming back to this one.
Temporary freezes
by CharlieGx on 2017/10/01 23:13
During each session will freeze for up to 30 seconds but then continues fine.

Longtime Eric fan
by Gsegbbig edx on 2019/07/21 13:52
I’ve been an Eric’s Solitare practically since the beginning (1997?ish) and loved playing so that every game was solvable. Miss that. Otherwise love the game, easy to see, feels like I’m playing with real cards.
Great
by Shiney Nancy on 2019/02/02 05:42
I’ve had this for a long time! I just transferred it to my iPad. I have tried others, but they are not this good!

by Wumpus Hunter on 2020/11/28 04:28
So I uninstalled and reinstalled. Now it works. Love the game play. Wish you had Christmas holiday themes.
Fun to play

Keeps my mind active in a fun way! Part of my daily routine.
Clunky, erratic, prone to freezing
by Philpattyt on 2018/02/25 18:16
Eric’s games USED to be the best. He quit caring about a year ago. Concerns are ignored immediately. After sharing my concerns about poor play on two different iPhones several times with no improvement I finally deleted and found another app.
The best!!
by sp4rose on 2018/08/10 00:30
Clearly the best solitaire game in the App Store bar none! Had to leave one star off for not optimized for iPhone X screen.
Used to be great. Now it is sluggish and jumpy.
by NF6X on 2018/12/06 21:47
This Solitaire app used to be fantastic, but current versions are very sluggish and jumpy. Frequent pauses while moving cards make it unpleasant to play. I am currently using version 1.8 on an iPhone 8.
Love this!
by GrammaPW on 2020/05/04 23:55
Been playing this game since it came free on all new Macs. Thanks, Eric!!!!

Too disadvantageous to the player. Game limited to 48 % success.

but i hate the rate me box popping up all the time with no way to stop it. don’t know if that’s their choice or apples system. don’t care
Too slow
by Erich.V on 2017/12/17 23:33
There’s animation use to place cards is more a meditative pace. No one would call it snappy.

Best solitaire ever
Outstanding regular solitaire game
by new old school maven on 2017/07/12 00:55
This is the best regular solitaire game on any platform (like the one Gates used as main fun element to initially " monopolize" pc platform windows) but tweaked ten fold. I haven't tried all the others but a lot of them. The sounds are perfect. Visuals colorful but not distracting and without silly nit picking rules that penalize for seeing a move a second too late and quickly redoing the move u just discovered. The only suggestion I have to improve is adding a wider range of comments to offer more nuanced reactions to the player's game performance. ( i wish Eric would come up with a submarine and airport game since he is the master of knowing how to keep the skill in the conceptual thinking and fun and eliminating tiny and unneeded skill in minutia. All sub and airplane games suffer from having a plethora of sim details that sap the fun out of the symbolic meaning and emotion that a sub or airport environment should have.)
Very good
by Pullrod on 2011/07/15 18:17
Eric you did a fine job. Im 54, yes older folks have iphones too! Ha. I downloaded and installed aprox. 7 free versions of solitare. For me this one was absolutley the better of the bunch. I can See the cards! Which is very important with this card game. So i Purchsed the full version, there was no need to try out another!! Graphics are crisp amd clear, the card size is good. Card action is crisp and nice animation. Colors are vibrent and realistic. Eric has made this a thinking solitare game, hand is not always an instance winner, very challenging hands of solitare. Great job. On your next update, (for the older people, over 40 that is) see if you could increase the size of cards by 15 thousands, maybe 20 thousands of an inch. But, this is the nicest app of solitare i have played on my iphone. Thanks.
FINALLY! Solitaire like I remember!
by disneymagik on 2011/11/17 13:06
I learned how to play from my Grandparents who live 250 miles away so the time we spent was very memorable & we played ALOT of cards! I used to love playing Solitaire with real cards, and when we got our first PC, I think I clocked the most hrs playing! BUT, it was called SPIDER Solitaire on the PC so that's the App I bought first since I was sure it was the one, but NOPE! I moved on to buy Eric's Solitaire's one at a time with Klondike, of course, being the very last. Before i'd purchased ANY of them, I would've said that it was DEFINITELY NOT Klondike I was looking for since I hadn't even heard of it before, but now I know, that's exactly what it is and I love it!! :)
Love this App
by KGizmo4 on 2011/04/17 20:27
This is a great solitaire game with a great user interface. I like that you can just tap the cards to move them. Much better that drag and drop. I've tried many of the free versions of solitaire apps on the app store and decided this one was the best one for me. I'm glad that there was a free version that allowed me to try it before I bought it. I feel that if I truly love an app, I don't mind upgrading to the paid version. This is the developer's hard work and they deserve to be paid for their talents if the app is worthy which this one is. Thanks!
Pretty good, but with bugs.
by melgross on 2017/06/07 19:36
The real question is when this will be updated for ios 11. While we're told it will be, the time is getting close. Shortly I will be on the ios 11 beta, and then poof, it won't work. Older review: The game is well done, and a lot of fun to play. The animations are nicely implemented. But, there are too many bugs. The automatic function is very buggy. Sometimes it will pick up on all the cards during the gameplay, and sometimes it won't pick up even one. Sometimes it will pick some up, but will stop in the middle for no apparent reason. This isn't a problem when at the end of a won game, but during the game when an ace is thrown onto the table. In addition, the sensor for horizontal and vertical is too sensitive. I'm blaming the game for this because it doesn't seem to be a problem with the playing board itself, but the the window that pops up at the end of the game, and when accessing the statistics, which sometimes opens up upside down. This is with my iPad 2. I don't remember if things were this buggy on my old one. If the bugs were fixed, I would give this a five.
Don't waste money on other games, this is the best Klondike out there!
by LeZorg on 2009/10/19 13:53
Card games are my favorite handheld games, and I have purchased at least 10 different Klondike/solitaire games so far, including all the most popular ones, but this one is the only one I have at this time on my iPhone. Most card apps try too hard to be look great and in the end they're not as fun to play. It's easy to play, the cards are big and readable, the design is nice, it's a great implementation for real Klondike lovers out there. Get it now!
So disappointed with latest update
by KatVirMcK on 2017/07/11 15:55
Update: The jumpiness problem has been resolved. There are still a few minor bugs left, but I can play again. I don't know if I will be able to continue playing with this update that was automatically done. Even after changing the settings, it has slowed down making plays, and the cards are very "jumpy" which is very distracting. If this isn't fixed back to what it was before, I'll have to find another solitaire game to play. I'm upset, because this has been my favorite for many years.
Love it!
by Claymouth on 2009/09/28 06:17
Up until this point I had only bothered playing free Solitaire apps, but on the recommendation of a friend I bought this version and I couldn't be happier. The interface is so intuitive, and the card tossing feature actually makes the game even more fun to play. I love the way the hints are implemented as well - I get a few seconds to make my move before the hints appear, but just when I'm starting to feel stuck the cards give me a little wiggle. Great job!
Most Fun Solitaire!
by ChellQ on 2011/11/13 03:46
Eric's is the most fun of the several solitaire games I've tried on the iPhone. The card flinging alone sets it apart. It's not easy to make solitaire enjoyable on such a small screen, but Eric's does big time. The only thing I'd add is the ability to change the faces of the cards - the faces don't show the pips and that makes it harder to instantly know the number on the card - I have to look harder to read the numbers and it slows my recognition.
Great game!
by Renee Aubuchon on 2011/04/17 17:52
This is a serviceable Klondike game. I wish one could see what the unrevealed cards are when the game becomes hopeless...although I pretty much know what they are given that their absence as playable cards is what dooms a game. While some may find that the cards wiggle back and worth amusing, I only find it distracting. If I knew of a way to turn the wiggling off, I most certainly would. I appreciate the game statistics as well. Thank you for making this game.
